\ -> Rexx -> Inbuilt PPWIZARD Functions -> FileQueryExists()


This is an inbuilt function function provided by PPWIZARD.

This routine is generally used for 2 main reasons:

  1. To find out if a file exists (this function returns "" if it doesn't).

  2. To ensure we have the full (absolute) name of the file (not relative). If the file exists the full name is always returned.

This routine takes these parameters:

  1. FileName
    This is the name of a file being queried.

  2. Die if file does not exist? An optional parameter, if set to 'Y' causes PPWIZARD to abort if the file does not exist.

The DirQueryExists() function performs the same function for directories.
